US ID Unit Standard Title Pre-2009 NQF Level NQF Level Credits Replacement Status
14467  Establish client requirements and gather and apply required design information  Level 4  NQF Level 04  Complete 

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
The qualifying learner will acquire the knowledge and skills to interpret a client's requirements and gather the required information to physically represent the client's design in the form of a freehand drawing and a scale model. The application of perception and visualisation principles will assist the learner to interpret the client's brief. The produced scale model and sketch will be confirmed to represent the client's requirements.

The qualifying learner will be capable of:
  • Analysing the client brief.
  • Gathering on-site information.
  • Applying principles of perception and visualization to the brief.
  • Analysing and applying data to the design.
  • Producing a free-hand drawing of the proposal. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
  • Communication at NQF Level 3.
  • Technical Drawing at NQF Level 3.

    PROVIDERS CURRENTLY ACCREDITED TO OFFER THIS UNIT STANDARD: 
    This information shows the current accreditations (i.e. those not past their accreditation end dates), and is the most complete record available to SAQA as of today. Some Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionaries have a lag in their recording systems for provider accreditation, in turn leading to a lag in notifying SAQA of all the providers that they have accredited to offer qualifications and unit standards, as well as any extensions to accreditation end dates. The relevant Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionary should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
